Whole-Cell Models and Simulations in Molecular Detail.

Summary of "Whole-Cell Models and Simulations in Molecular Detail."

Comprehensive data about the composition and structure of cellular components have enabled the construction of quantitative whole-cell models. While kinetic network-type models have been established, it is also becoming possible to build physical, molecular-level models of cellular environments. This review outlines challenges in constructing and simulating such models and discusses near- and long-term opportunities for developing physical whole-cell models that can connect molecular structure with biological function. Expected final online publication date for the Volume 35 is October 7, 2019. Please see for revised estimates.

The Scientific Case for Brain Simulations.

A key element of the European Union's Human Brain Project (HBP) and other large-scale brain research projects is the simulation of large-scale model networks of neurons. Here, we argue why such simula...

Mathematical model and computer simulations of telomere loss.

The molecular mechanisms that control the limited number of human cell divisions has occupied researchers ever since its first description in 1961. There is evidence that this limited growth capacity,...

Minimal coarse-grained models for molecular self-organisation in biology.

The molecular machinery of life is largely created via self-organisation of individual molecules into functional assemblies. Minimal coarse-grained models, in which a whole macromolecule is represente...

Correction of diffusion calculations when using two types of non-rectangular simulation boxes in molecular simulations.

Although simulation boxes used in molecular dynamics are normally chosen to be cubic or rectangular, two other cell shapes that are very familiar to crystallographers-the truncated octahedron and the ...

Transport of cystine across xC antiporter.

Extracellular cystine (CYC) uptake by xC antiporter is important for the cell viability. Especially in cancer cells, the upregulation of xC activity is observed, which protects these cells from intrac...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Models used experimentally or theoretically to study molecular shape, electronic properties, or interactions; includes analogous molecules, computer-generated graphics, and mechanical structures.

Models connecting initiating events at the cellular and molecular level to population-wide impacts. Computational models may be at levels relating toxicology to adverse effects.

Theoretical representations that simulate the behavior or activity of biological processes or diseases. For disease models in living animals, DISEASE MODELS, ANIMAL is available. Biological models include the use of mathematical equations, computers, and other electronic equipment.

Statistical models in which the value of a parameter for a given value of a factor is assumed to be equal to a + bx, where a and b are constants. The models predict a linear regression.

Statistical models of the production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services, as well as of financial considerations. For the application of statistics to the testing and quantifying of economic theories MODELS, ECONOMETRIC is available.
